Leeds Welcome | Lucifer


Belgian maverick Gust Van Den Berghe has invented a new circular film format he calls Tondoscope, in which the image is like an iris, shot via an optical cone-shaped mirror. The story follows Lucifer himself, who passes through the earthly paradise of Mexico on his way from Heaven to Hell, where elderly Lupita and her granddaughter Maria live. Lupita’s brother Emanuel pretends he’s paralyzed so he can drink and gamble while the two women tend to the sheep. Lucifer senses an opportunity and plays the miraculous healer, illuminating the line between good and evil, where it didn’t exist before
